    This group of 1883 Maps from A Brief History of Ancient, Mediaeval and Modern Peoples, published by A.S. Barnes & Co., consists of eight maps on four double pages.  They include: three adjacent maps of the "Assyrian Empire (700 B.C.)", "Kingdoms of Lydia, Media, Cilicia and Later Babylonia (600 B.C.)", and the "Persian Empire showing the 20 Satrapies of Darius Hystaspes, and the Provinces at the time of Alexander the Great"; two adjacent maps of "Hellas or Greece, and the Colonies" and "Hellas or Greece"; "The Provinces of the Roman Empire, at the time of its greatest extent" with Italia divided into the 11 Regions of Augustus; and "Great Voyages of Discovery Since the 15th Century and Principal Colonial Possessions."  The exterior border of the double pages measures 9" wide by 7.125" high.  All of the maps have been printed in pastel colors (yellow, pink, dusty rose, lavender, green, orange, ivory and blue) on a newsprint type paper which has yellowed over time.  These 1883 Maps from A Brief History of Ancient, Mediaeval and Modern Peoples are in generally good condition, particularly given their age.  There are some small very faint discolorations on the borders.  The Hellas or Greece map has torn about 2.5" along the bottom of the center fold.  Ideal for collage or other art projects.
